Subject: Hot as a pistol but cool inside...
Start of the show was kinda shaky, but by the time they began playing Go To Heaven songs they really picked up! Second set starts strong and keeps it up! The jam out of Estimated into He's Gone is sweet! And so is the jam out of that, god damn! From there on out it gets that super cool with a great Drums and some far out sounds Brent brought to the band at the time. Super heavy Other One and a rockin' Wharf Rat!
I've been really diggin' these Fall '79 shows. October throughout the New Year, it's all fuckin' sweet!
Subject: First (but certainly not last,) Alabama Getaway!
This show was played just on the heels of the now, historic, Cape Cod, MA shows. And the boys didn't disappoint. Another great performance. Surprise open with the New & Improved Minglewood Blues. Jamming all over stuff like Lost Sailor/Saint. Great Alabama Getaway, (pre-synth, though the recording for the forgetful Go to Heaven album was done over the previous summer.) Revival of Greatest Story Ever Told and a beautifully melodic intro and outro to He's Gone after a sublime slice of Estimated. Brent's keyboard solo following the final verse just played so sweetly with Phil's bass before finally yeilding to Jerry's licks. And that cool dirge-like riff coming out of the drums was one to remember.
This date was marked by the taking of US hostages in Iran, and the end of Jimmy Carter's presidency. But I'll rememember it for the ride I got in Stella Blue and the sweet songs that made me feel like I'd 'get up and fly away'. We loved each other,didn't we, bros? Jester
Subject: one of my very first shows
thank you for this lovely clean recording of it. I remember I was tickled to hear Ship of Fools and He's Gone, two of the favorites in my very limited knowledge of GD music.
